Hublot ambassador ‘GGG’ has set a division record with his 21st successful World Middleweight title defences.
Gennadiy Golovkin, described as boxing’s most dominant middleweight of his era, returned to the ring on Friday, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, in Hollywood, Florida, and did so in style.
Golovkin, a native of Kazakhstan, defeated previously unbeaten top-rated contender Kamil Szeremeta, of Poland by a seventh-round TKO.
In a vintage performance, GGG was on the attack from the opening bell, breaking down his opponent with a variety of power punches that produced four knockdowns, en-route to a seventh-round stoppage.
Golovkin, the Hublot ambassador and two-time World Middleweight Champion, added to his legendary boxing résumé by successfully defending his world middleweight title for a division-record 21st time.
Golovkin’s most memorable moments inside the ring have occurred with Hublot emblazoned across his fight night trunks.
Friday’s battle against Szeremeta was GGG’s sixth world championship fight sporting the Hublot name.
Golovkin, who has worn a world championship belt every year since 2010, has packed iconic arenas around the world, selling out Madison Square Garden, The O2 in London, the Fabulous Forum and StubHub Center in Los Angeles, and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. His decade-long rampage on the middleweight division has also attracted millions of viewers who have watched him on premium cable, pay-per-view, and DAZN. Friday’s historic victory was streamed live to over 200 countries and territories on DAZN.
Of the partnership, Golovkin said: “I am proud of my partnership with Hublot. In boxing, inside and outside the ring, timing is everything.”
While Ricardo Guadalupe, said: “Congratulations “GGG”! What an incredible and memorable fight. We couldn’t be more proud to have been present in the ring with you for this historic 21st successful middleweight title defense. What a true champion you are!”
